What Students Are Saying

3.83 Average Rating
Bluffton offers a lot of opportunities for prospective students on campus. Prospectives can design their own visitation days, or attend a Bluffton University Discovery day. For those involved in athletics there are plenty of days designed for prospective students on game days. I recommend visiting the campus and doing an overnight.
Tessa from Middlebury, IN
Come and have an overnight visit and sit in on some classes. Its a great way to experience college life and see if its a good fit for you.
Kim from Bluffton, OH
You should definitely come for a visit and mot definitely an overnight visit because you get a better picture of how campus life actually is if you stay with a student. Get in touch with the admissions office and they will give you all the information you need and you can always ask for a student involved on campus with what you are interested in.
Ashley from Hopedale, IL
Visit campus while classes are in session to experience the sense of community at Bluffton. Visiting as a prospective transfer student, I was immediately welcomed as a member of the Bluffton family and I knew I had found my home!
Katie from Gibsonburg, OH
When choosing your school make sure to visit your top choices. I recommend staying overnight to get a better feel for the campus and the people.
